Philly

Keen yet admittedly relatively inexperienced climber and mountaineer whose love for adventure and high stuff currently exceeds skills and knowledge! I've been climbing for 3 years, recently started leading trad and just become president of Warwick University Climbing Club. Off to Everest Base Camp in August, and am gradually racking up the list of 'places climbed', yet have a long way to go! I teach climbing in Maine in the summers, and have a bucket list longer than anyone's I know. Onward and upward, always :)

Best Climbing Experience
Siurana, Spain, 10 days of the most incredible Sport I've ever experienced... or maybe that multi-pitch in Sicily when we got the rope stuck and it got dark. Always take your headtorch...

About My Photography
Been photographing longer than I've been climbing, but recently dropped my little digital camera off a 40ft climb and it is no more... can't take the big one up with me so unfortunately just have alot of bum-shots of my partner at the moment. Must work on the outdoor sport/photography balance but at the moment just having the experiences is over-ruling the documentation of them!

no mugshot supplied!
